Steve, my farmer friend, has kept me well supplied with zucchini. I was looking to make an original muffin recipe to thank him that would knock his socks off.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup margarine, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup grated zucchini
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • ½ cup walnut pieces

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Prepare 12 muffin cups with liners.
  2. 2 Mix 6 tablespoons flour and brown sugar together in a bowl for topping; cut butter into the flour mixture until you have pea-sized crumbs. Set aside.
  3. 3 Beat margarine and white sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat egg and vanilla into the butter mixture.
  4. 4 Mix 1 1/2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a separate bowl; gradually beat into the butter mixture. Fold zucchini, cranberries, and walnuts into the mixture; spoon into prepared muffin cups, filling nearly to the top. Sprinkle reserved topping mixture onto the batter.
  5. 5 Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.

Reviews

  1. I will DEFINITELY be making these again. It's great to find more recipes to use up my garden zucchini! Here are my tweaks to the recipe: -Replaced 1/2 of the butter with applesauce -Used whole wheat flour -Reduced sugar to 2/3 cup -Replaced walnuts with pecans -Used dried cranberries
  2. We loved them but i did change a few things to make them a bit healthier. Instead of 1 1/2 cups of flour I used 1 cup of flour and 1/2 cup of oats. I only used 3/4 cup of sugar and for the 1/2 cup of butter is used 3 tablespoons of butter and - Read more ...
  3. These turned out wonderfully. I used butter instead of margarine and pecans instead of walnuts. My husband who says he doesn't especially like muffins loved these and so did all the guys at his work. I was going to add apple pie spice as suggested by someone but I forgot. I will make these again - Read more ...
  4. I made this recipe exactly as posted and think it is a bit too sweet. There is another zucchini bread recipe on this site that is named either Mom's Zucchini Bread or Grandma bread that I will add fresh cranberries to.
  5. These muffins are INCREDIBLE! I didn't have any nuts and I used dried cranberries. I also added one and a half tsp. of apple pie spice. one tsp. would have done the job. these muffins are very moist which almost puts them on the rich scale. YUM oh and the streusel topping? THE BOMB! thanks - Read more ...
  6. Wow what a great flavor. I was a little concerned that the fresh berries would be too tart but not a chance. Love the flavor. I will definitely be making the again soon.
  7. Very tasty! I especially like the tanginess the cranberries add to the recipe. I replaced the margarine with 1/4 cup oil and 1/4 cup applesauce and also cut the sugar a little. I only made half of the topping and that was enough. Thanks for the recipe!
  8. Loved them! I just added some nutmeg and cinnamon but they were wonderful. Gave one to my daughters 10 year old friend and she loved them and had no clue they had veggies in them:) Thank you so much
  9. Very Yummy!!!!! made it a bit healthier with unsalted butter(instead of margarine). Also used 1 cup of mashed banana(instead of sugar) 2packets of Stevia. And added 1/2tsp. Cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. Nutmeg. Moist and delicious!!!!
  10. I made the recipe exactly as listed. They were moist and flavorful. Anytime SHORECOOK creates a recipe it is sure to be good. I used frozen cranberries.
